Southland GTTA with support from Techlink and Tools for Work is hosting a PD day Fri 19 Nov at Gore High School to: 

1. Outline different scenarios for a Level 1 course involving the generic and new Construction and Mechanical Achievement Standards (See below for draft standards)

2. Outline a blended course of both Competenz Unit Standards and Technology Achievement Standards

 Mr Steve Ronowicz is presenting the outline of different scenarios for a Level 1 course. He is the present HOD of Technology at Tauranga Boys’ College and has been a HOD for 13 years. Steve was the National Moderator for Technology in 2008 and has been involved in writing Technology Achievement Standards.

He is the present HOD of Design and Technology at Waimea College (Nelson) and has been a HOD for 25 years. Kevin is the Competenz Moderator for Nelson/Malborough/Westcoast.
